About the Book

All of a sudden, everyone is talking about artificial intelligence. It appears as frequently in the news headlines as indefinite articles before nouns. Not to speak about all the other over-hyped buzzwords from the tech scene. Deep learning, machine learning, smart algorithms, augmented intelligence, cognitive computing all line up next to artificial intelligence as the most popular expressions for innovation.

 

This guide clears up misconceptions about A.I., deep learning, and machine learning, among others to offer a clear overview for healthcare practitioners. It also describes in what fields A.I. can change medicine and healthcare, as well as present the companies with the best track-records.
